If you want a wonderful pet, look no further than a cat. Anyone who is new to cat ownership has come to the right place. The following contains helpful advice all cat owners should know.

It’s not easy convincing your pet that the kitchen counter is a no-cats zone. A cat will naturally want to be high enough to view everything around them. Give them an alternative. A cat tower near the kitchen will ensure that cats won’t lay on your counter.

Cats will often devote most of their time to grooming. When your cat’s coat is long, it can result in hairballs. There are special foods that can ease this issue. Some foods are enriched in fibers and vitamins to facilitate the digestion of the hairballs.

Crystals form in urine from male cats. This can be prevented with good food choices. Passing crystals is very painful for your cat, and the vet’s bill will be painful for you. Give your cat foods that are low in magnesium. Read the labels. Fish-based foods usually contain more magnesium than poultry-based foods.

Cat Outside

Think hard before allowing your cat outside. Letting your cat outside greatly increases his risk level. Your cat may get fleas or something even worse than that. Cats can be gravely injured or killed by eating poisonous plants, flowers or chemicals, hit by a car or even harmed by neighbors who are irritated with your cat on their property. When your cats go outside, keep an eye out to make sure they do not wander too far away.

It’s important to let your cat see where you place the litter box, but it’s not always a good idea to force your cat to learn how to use it. This comes quite naturally to them and is not something that is learned. While some folks think you should pick up your cat and place their paws against the litter, this can actually be traumatic.

Get a drinking fountain for your cat. Cats who are in the wild prefer to drink from running water, and this holds true for domestic cats, as well. Cats seem to like a water stream better. Really, there are many cats that would much prefer to drink from a running sink faucet as opposed to their own bowl. Drinking fountains are more environmentally-friendly and they let your cat drink naturally.

New cats are sometimes not welcomed in the home. Cats usually do not like change, especially when it comes to another cat. Therefore, they may hide, hiss, or even fight one another. With enough time to acclimate themselves to the new arrangement, though, virtually any two cats will become willing, friendly, and perhaps even inseparable companions.

If you are getting a pet, cats are a fantastic choice. They can help you to unwind and can bring you a great deal of comfort. However, in order for them to give their best, they need to be properly cared for. Be sure to build a healthy relationship by using the above advice.
